I’ve been wanting to paint my little office at Juniper Studio, but our ceilings in here are 15ft high (!), so I’ve been holding off. But recently I saw this image and decided a color blocked wall would be SO cool in here, so when BEHR asked if I wanted to use their 2018 color of the year (which happened to be INSANELY on brand with our Juniper colors!), I jumped at the chance to paint my office!
BEHR’s 2018 color trends are SO GOOD. Check out how beautifully all these colors play together! All of them are available at Home Depot now. Some of my favorite color combos are here – blush, olive, forest green, rust, coral and then of course this beautiful blue-green-gray color that they picked to be their color of the year. It’s called IN THE MOMENT, and I’m obsessed.
My office before was a boring sea of white and desperately needed some color and life!
I picked up a gallon of IN THE MOMENT (T18-15) at my local Home Depot and a roll of painter’s tape. To get that color blocked look, I measured 72″ from the floor and marked every three feet or so with a pencil. Then I taped all around the room using the marks to keep the tape as straight as possible. The best way to make your paint lines are SUPER crisp is to first brush on a coat of the background color (the bright white we have on all the walls in the studio, in my case) on the bottom edge of your painters tape. This seals the tape and ensures if there are any leaks under the tape, it will be the background color!
Once the sealer paint is totally dry you can finish rolling on your main color and you can remove the tape to unveil the most perfectly crisp paint line you’ve ever seen!
I used Behr’s Marquee paint line, which is a paint and primer in one, so I only needed to roll on one coat! We busted out this project in about an hour!
The IN THE MOMENT color is such a happy pop of color in our white studio. I’ve been loving working in this space and I can honestly say it is a super soothing, easy-to-live-with color!
